    Default Mailto:

    I am developping a windows applciation in dotnet for a customer who uses Zimbra as their mail tool accross the network. The application has to create a list of contacts to email and put their email address into the BCC field on an email. A sample of the mailto command I am using is

    This works fine where the default mail client is Outlook, Outlook Express or Thunderbird, but when the default mail client is Zimbra the cc and bcc fields are not populated by the data in the command. The other three fields (To, Subject and Body) are populated correclty. Does anyone know why Zimbra is unable to process the command fully?

    Unhappy Not supported

    If anyone else is trying to do this, I have been told that Zimbra does not currently support the CC and BCC tags in mailto links. There is a known bug (see Bug 27063 – "mailto:" is passed into the prepopulated "to:" field when setting zimbra as default mail app) which has been resolved and is due out in the next release 6.0 alter in 2009.
